Cook County Community Calendar

Some plants may look beautiful, but they can have devastating effects.   Non-native invasive plants affect human health, economics, and forest ecology. Learn to identify and control Canada thistle, common tansy, spotted knapweed and other invasive plants.  Learn when pulling, cutting, or herbicides are needed, as well as herbicide application techniques such as spraying and weed wiping.

Planting trees and shrubs after controlling the invasive plants can help reclaim the site.  Learn about a gravel bed nurseries as a means to grow roots, increase plant survival and successfully extend the planting season into late summer and early fall.
